Spring has sprung, the days are longer and the nights are shorter. The increase in sunshine is usually a cause for celebration – but in some cases it brings with it the problem of glare
As a result of sunlight through your windows, glare is a year round issue, but it’s worse as we move towards Summer. The increase in sunshine can make for an uncomfortable environment, with light streaming through windows and making it difficult to focus on screens, paperwork or colleagues.
An application of window film can deliver immediate relief without sacrificing the view, natural light or the appearance of your windows.
Filter out glare without blocking the view or natural light
Technical Window Films offer a range of anti-glare window films, with a range of performance levels and appearances to choose from. In effect, the film works by applying a filter to the glass. Light is still allowed to pass through the glass, but the harshest elements are filtered out by the film.
Up to 95% of the glare can be reduced with film, negating the need for blinds or curtains which block both the view and natural light, often creating an even less pleasant environment to work or live in. No specific after-care is required after window film installation; windows can be cleaned in the normal way after the install has taken place – unlike blinds or curtains which can quickly gather dust.
Improved solar control = Lower energy costs
As the weather warms up, window film is proven to be an excellent way to reduce the transmission of solar heat into your home through glass. In addition to cutting down on glare, this range of films can also help to deliver a more comfortable internal environment – particularly useful during the height of Summer. Everyone enjoys warmer weather, but without professionally installed window film, the price we pay to stay cool inside can add up quickly. Depending on the size of your building and the number of windows you have, an application of film could result in reduced energy costs and a lower carbon footprint.
Professional window film installation for vehicles
This can make a nice ride a really wonderful one, by keeping the cabin temperature more comfortable and consistent, reducing glare and helping to protect the vehicle’s interior from UV fading (not to mention protection of your skin and eyes), because window film blocks up to 99 percent of harmful UV rays.
In short, there is no need to suffer at the hands of the sun this Spring. An application of film can be undertaken by one of our expert installation teams quickly and efficiently.
